Earlier this week we wrote about ION Audio’s Piano Apprentice learning system, which essentially turns your iPad into a keyboard so that you can learn how to read music and play certain songs. Well now an inventor and electronics engineer in the US called Harvey Starr wants to be able to turn our favourite little Apple tablet into a guitar.
The iTar device, which is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, is designed for all kinds of musicians and hackers and consists of a button-based guitar fretboard integrated with a dock for the iPad.
However, it’s not just about turning your iPad into only a guitar, iTar can be used with all kinds of applications to allow you to use the multi-touch screen to strum on a guitar, tap on keys, bang on drums, the list is endless.
The iTar is currently on Kickstarter with 54 days to go.
